Broadway Blend

For the festive edition of the Broadway Blend we have the return of two reliably balanced coffees from Finca San Lorenzo and the innovative COMSA co-operative. Each year both of these producers offer a dependable base of body, sweetness and intensity - a classic combination to keep you going through the holiday season. #drinklikealocal

The Story

Our Broadway Blend emphasises closer farm and import relationships working with many of the same coffees each year, selected for their unique representations of origin and terroir. This is our go-to balanced espresso on Broadway Market and pairs perfectly with milk.


The Details

Set in Guatemala’s rainforest region of Coban, San Lorenzo is run by the pioneering Valdez family. Don Luis oversees their two farms whilst his sons Luis and Rodrigo manage the agricultural and export tasks. Ripe red cherries are processed at the family's wet mill where extended soaking times of up to 48 hours reflect in incredibly crisp and clean coffees. The humid rainforest conditions make consistent drying a challenge, so clean co ee (still in parchment) starts its drying on patios before being moved to sheltered greenhouses for over 15 days. Coban expects rain almost 10 months of the year so the coffees moisture content is further stabilised in rotating mechanical dryers known as guardiolas. A further 30 hectares of the farm is set aside for the conservation of native forest and wildlife.

Located to the South-East of Guatemala is the COMSA Cooperative, a growing collective of neighbouring farmers set in Marcala, La Paz. Starting in 2001 with 69 local producers COMSA (Café Orgánico Marcala) set out to improve their communities co ee and livelihoods through sustainable organic production. Now they represent over 1,200 members and provide training in organic farm regeneration, water management and wildlife conservation. The improved quality and prices continue to motivate producing families and act as a beacon of inspiration as to the long-term sustainability of organic specialty practices.
